Three Lions football legend David Beckham – who is just recovering from a web of scandals – is set to join past and current English players to raise cancer awareness, according to Sky Sports.
The ex-Real Madrid star would join top stars like John Terry, Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen, David James et al in celebrations of the 10th anniversary of England Footballers Foundation. The football stars would do this in support of the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.
Bobby Moore is one of the most popular names in English football. He was the skipper of the English side that lifted their only World Cup yet. He is known to be one of the best players in the English shirt. He died at the age of 51 after battling cancer of the Liver and Bowel.
The campaign: ‘Moore to Know, raises awareness of the illness – prevention, symptoms and treatment.
The England Football Foundation was initiated back in 2007 for players to donate to charitable causes. That year the player became the first batch of Three Lions stars not to receive fees but donate them to various causes.
“The work that’s been going on for ten years with the charities so far has been outstanding, the lives that it impacts and effects is fantastic. When the current players look back in 20 to 30 years in terms of their achievements, they can look back upon the England Footballers Foundation as being one of them,” Gary Neville, one of brains behind the foundation, said.
Current and present Three Lions players are poised to line up for a special fundraising game for the foundation in the last week of March.
The founder of the campaign Stephanie Moore MBE is appreciative to the foundation for their support, and to the players for all the work.
